For those who work with cylinders, a geometric understanding of the shapes involved and how they fit together are crucial for excellence in their trade. This book allows pipe fitters to connect their work to its logical base -- maths. The straightforward tone, multitude of illustrations, and example problems will help even those with underdeveloped maths skills learn the calculations. Forty-one sets of exercises with answers give the reader ample practice as well as applying the maths skills.

Unlike the majority of construction project management textbooks out there, Management of Construction Projects takes a distinctive approach by setting itself in the context of a single and real-world construction project throughout and also by looking at construction project management from the constructor’s perspective. This project-based learning approach emphasizes the skills, knowledge, and techniques students require to become successful project managers. This second edition uses a brand new, larger, and more challenging case study to take students through key stages of the process, including: contracts and subcontracting; estimating, scheduling, and planning; supply chain and materials management; cost control, quality, and safety; project leadership and ethics; and claims, disputes, and project close-outs. Also new to this edition is coverage of emergent industry trends such as LEAN, LEED, and BIM. The book contains essential features such as review questions, exercises, and chapter summaries, while example plans, schedules, contracts, and other documents are stored on a companion website. Written in straightforward language from a constructor’s perspective, this textbook gives a realistic overview and review of the roles of project managers and everything they need to know in order to see a successful project through from start to finish.

In the First Edition of this classic text, Roger Haines devised a simple building-block method which enabled students to quickly learn about the operating principles and applications of all the basic devices and subsystems used in HVAC control. The new Fifth Edition, completely revised by Douglas Hittle, takes into account the many technological changes that have arisen since then. Crystal-clear guidelines on combining control devices, circuits, computers, and HVAC equipment into efficient control systems that are accurate and energy-efficient are presented along with hundreds of charts and illustrations which provide data critical to the understanding and design of modern HVAC systems. These include: psychrometric charts and tables relating to optimal levels of temperature and humidity at specific altitudes: block/flow diagrams which show control component function; circuit diagrams of important electrical control system components; schematic diagrams showing the configuration of various control systems.
